Now that the iPhone 4S/5 rumors were put to rest when Apple officially announced the iPhone 4S earlier today, now it’s time to see what Apple has added to this device during the 15 months since they released the iPhone 4. Yup, that’s 15 months, one year and days, ever since Apple started working on the iPhone 4S, that may mean that Apple worked like slave to make the iPhone 4S the most powerful device on the planet with the most features that even Android fanboys will kiss Steve Jobs and throw their Android phones in the toilet. Really? Here’s everything you need to know about the iPhone 4S.
A hardware redesign was one of the most wanted feature of the next iPhone. Unfortunately, the iPhone 4S has the same design of the current iPhone 4. We will have to wait until the iPhone 5 to see if Apple comes with another design for the iPhone.
Upgraded iPhone 4S new camera
One thing Apple has done on every new iPhone that they have release every year is to upgrade the camera. On the iPhone 4S, Apple has upgrade the camera and have added new features.
8 megapixels: The camera in the iPhone 4S features an 8 megapixels sensor, vs the 5 megapixels in the iPhone 4. The new sensor in the iPhone 4S is a CMOS backside illuminated. Apple claims that this sensor gets you 73% more light than the sensor found in the iPhone 4.
Full HD 1080p Video: With the new sensor and improve lens in the iPhone 4S camera, you will be able to shoot videos at 1080p with Real-time stabilization new feature.
CPU and graphics
The iPhone 4S uses the same dual core A5 CPU that the iPad 2 use. The iPhone 4S has dual-core graphics, which renders applications more detailed and faster. Apple says that with the A5 CPU and dual -core graphics, the iPhone 4S is seven times faster than the iPhone 4.
Apple added another carrier as one of the official carriers in the US for iPhone , and that carrier is Sprint. Now the iPhone will be available in three carrier in the states: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. No shit for T-Mobile yet.
4G LTE or faster data speed
Not, yet. The iPhone 4S will be compatible with HSPA+ networks, a much faster network than the iPhone 4 3G, it’s like 3.5G with a theoretical download speed of 14.4Mbps.
